The Savannah Man & Woman of the Year campaign kicked off on Thursday, March 3rd and was hosted by Critz BMW.
The Savannah Office of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) Georgia Chapter is proud to announce the 2016 Man & Woman of the Year candidates. Twelve outstanding local community and business leaders are vying for the title this fourth annual campaign year. In the Man & Woman of the Year campaign, candidates compete in honor of local children who are blood cancer survivors, the Boy & Girl of the Year. The men and women strive to achieve their personal best by working with their family, friends and contacts to raise as much money as possible for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The titles are awarded to the man and woman who raise the most funds in a ten-week period. The top fundraisers in the country win the national titles. Last year’s Savannah Man & Woman of the Year titles were awarded to Ryan Fulchi, DMD of Habersham Dental and Suzanne Anderson, M.D. of Chatham Hospitalists.
The 2016 Savannah Man & Woman of the Year class includes the following individuals: Jamal Barrow, United States Air Force; Adam Cohen, Tenon Consulting; Jack O’Neill, Savannah Periodontics; Benjamin Couch Payne, Savannah Classical Academy; Joseph Shearouse, Jr., City of Savannah; Dominick Tambon, Arthrex; Carrie Egerton, Tanger Outlets, Hilton Head; Amelia Harper, TKL Research, Inc.; Kym Hogan, Yancey Bros., CAT; Shannan Hunt, Seabolt Brokers; Kelley Sullivan, BankSouth Mortgage; Natalie Moore- Winchell, Frank Moore & Company
“The Man & Women of the Year campaign is a great way for candidates to network with other influential people in their communities while also providing assistance and hope to thousands of blood cancer patients,” said Amy Riesinger, Area Director for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Georgia Chapter. “Candidates showcase their fundraising and community outreach skills as well as their commitment to the cause.”
The campaign will culminate at the Grand Finale Gala event on Friday, May 13th at Savannah Station. The candidates who raise the most funds will be awarded the Man & Woman of the Year titles, respectively. To learn more about the Man & Woman of the Year, visit www.mwoy.org/ga.
